We want to hear about your business journey.
The 1,000+ Stories Project is an effort by The Story Exchange to better understand the rewards and challenges of entrepreneurship for women business owners. By sharing your story, you gain media exposure for your company, as your story will receive a “profile” on this site. You also get the chance to inspire and help other women.
We occasionally use the data we collect to analyze trends and patterns of women’s entrepreneurship, such as our 2015 report.
This questionnaire includes several essay-style questions that will take at least 15-20 minutes to complete. Eligibility requirements: women who have established legal business entities who are the principal owners or leaders of their companies or organizations. We do not accept stories from franchisees, independent distributors or sales representatives.
